Dermot Corrigan in Spain

It is Tito's time...

Tito Vilanova looks cool, calm and collected as he prepares for his first competitive game as Barcelona head coach at the Camp Nou against Real Sociedad in their La Liga opener next Sunday, but it would be strange if he were not at least a little nervous. Josep Guardiola's four seasons in charge of Barcelona brought 14 trophies from the 19 competitions entered, including three La Liga titles and two Champions Leagues, as well as widespread acclaim as perhaps the best side in the history of the game. Even though Vilanova was there throughout as Guardiola's assistant, it is difficult to think of a harder act to follow in football.
